Re: removing ignition barrel

You gotta congratulate whomever came up with THAT little gem

I mean, really! The ignition barrel is goosed or the key is lost, but the irony being that you have to insert a key to be able to remove the bloomin thing

Yes, fraid the only way to do it is jiggle.

So jiggle it into park and then it slides out does it ?

Re: removing ignition barrel

You will have to remove the cowling then put the key to the first position and there is a tab/button that needs to be pushed in (with a screwdriver) to release the barrel. Just push the new barrel in and re-assemble.

What Scout said

I just got home and was probably not completely "in" when I posted the reply

Yes, position one, not back for parking lamps.

Have you been able to remove the shear bolts?

If not, that's a different story.......

All sorted , drilled it out in the end, not very subtle but did the job, taped the transponder in from the old key seems to be working ok. Thanks for the replies

Re: removing ignition barrel

I used a large 'torque converter' and now just use the switch instead of a key.
